Since NCPDP launched its resQ Pharmacy Credentialing Resource in early 2017, an average of 1,000 pharmacies per month have completed and submitted their profile credentials.
As of December 31, 2017, 15,091 pharmacies credentials were available in the resQ file, exceeding NCPDP’s year-end goal of 12,500 credentialed pharmacy profiles by 20%.
In the first two weeks of 2018, an additional 2,080 pharmacies have submitted their profile credentials. The 17,171 pharmacy credentials now available in the resQ file include independent pharmacies and six pharmacy chains. With NCPDP’s development of a batch update tool for chains, we are confident more chains will submit their credentialing data in the near future.
